Kim Dotcom reveals new domain for MEGA

Nearly a week after he lost the domain name, Kim Dotcom announced Monday on Twitter that MEGA will be available at the web address next year.

To be hosted in New Zealand, the domain is currently parked with Instra, the same domain registrar and web hosting company that powers his personal website,, which explains how the new MEGA will work.

The website says MEGA promises “Easy Privacy,” and will make an “Online Mega Manager,” a “Live Global Cloud File System,” and “Multi-centric data warehousing” available for its users.


“The new Mega encrypts and decrypts your data transparently in your browser, on the fly. You hold the keys to what you store in the cloud, not us,” an about page on the website stated.

MEGA, which replaces the shut down file-sharing site Megaupload, is set to launch on January 19, 2013.
